Exchange (EAS)

  • Contacts are pushed to the phone by the Exchange server when a contact is created or updated on, or removed from, the server.
  • Contacts are uploaded from the phone to the Exchange server when an email is sent from the Exchange account on the phone, the Exchange Inbox is opened on the phone, a manual sync is performed (in Contacts, Calendar, or Email), or a server event is received on the phone.
  • When an account is deleted from one app, the Exchange account is deleted from all apps.

Google
